Pics of all your handiwork are greatly appreciated! :-)

Wow, you did a great job! How long did it take you? Your niece will LOVE it forever.

Fold the top square from the top right to the bottom left just to the stitching line. I actually did these on the ironing board so I could press them as I folded each one.
After getting back from a great trip to Phoenix(loved the 35th Ave Sewing/Vacumn store--the one on 35th Av! Tons of fabrics and the folks at 3 Dudes were so nice and friendly) realized I have so much to get done before mid-May. So really hustled and had the customer graduation T-shirt quilt put together--just need to finish backing and put on the frame. I also got the 2 grandboys play mates quilted and now need to get the bias binding (they are circular) done for Easter. Have 29"corn heat/cold"packs
I need help with this pattern. The butterfly is made up of different blocks. I want to make all the blocks but I don't want to put them in the butterfly shape. Any suggestions?
Do anyone have a pattern for and 8 1/2 block of Ohio Star?
I have been looking for this fabric for a while now.
I thought it was called "Santa's Beard," but it is not that fabric.
It is called "YULETIDE" by Jinny Beyer.
I will buy whatever you have of this fabric if you have it.
Please see attachment of fabric needed.
Thank you so much!

My pattern says cut 1 5/8 squares. So I would cut stips at 1 5/8th or bigger? They have to measure 1 5/8 when done. Also you mean when u press the stirps the seams are open not together going one way? thanks for advice and tutorial!
